Unless you’re totally anti-literature, at some point in your life you’ve probably uttered the words “I wish I had more time to read.” The truth is, there are more books to be read on this planet than you could possibly get through in a thousand lifetimes. With that depressing thought behind us, let’s talk about what you can do on the reading front with the time you have left in this lifetime. Here are some tips for reading more books.
One of the biggest things you can do in your effort to read more books is to set specific goals for yourself. This will help you commit to reading X number of books in X amount of time. You can keep it simple, like reading one book per month. If that’s a bit too broad, try breaking it down to daily time commitments, like reading for half an hour each day (or 20 pages, if the idea of time really scares you).
Perhaps the easiest thing you can do to accomplish your goal of reading more books is to commit to simply reading every day. It doesn’t matter if it’s for 10 minutes or an hour, or if you get in just one page or six chapters. Committing to reading every day will make it part of your daily habit, and if you stick with it, you’ll be amazed at how many more books you can get through.
